facts. and both sides are doing this, both sides refusing to cut. look, according to president obama's own budget, we're going to run trillion dollar deficits ten years from now. and ten years and about 48 trillion dollars over the next ten years, we're trying to cut 1 trillion. instead of 40 cents of every dollar we're asking our government to borrow 38 cents a dollar. if a company can't cut 2%, not much less the entire 40% that we're borrowing, something's wrong. this is fear mongering at its worst. >> well, jehmu, do we have reason to be afraid? are you scared? >> yes. and we absolutely have reason to be afraid, brenda. how do you spell bad news for the company? s-e- s-e-q-u-... you get the point, sequester. and at the new year when we were looking at the fiscal cliff, but is there really a difference between the exorcist and the shining? the fear is there. of course we need cuts, you need it in stages. you don't do it when the economy is fragile. you do it when the recovery is stronger. and these across the board cuts, bad news. >> and tobin, i wouldn't call them cuts, they're tr

reporter, bob woodward, the watergate guy, the man who says that sequester is obama's idea, he gets an e-mail from the white house telling him he could quote, regret staking out that claim. regret. about obama and the sequester that is. sound like a threat to me. who sent that message? jean sperling, senior economic advisor to the president. could be a sign that the tide is turning. could the obama administration's honeymoon with the mainstream media be over? you'll get my take on that at 10:25. right, no growth in the last three months of last year, when everyone was shopping for christmas and the holidays. but we're still 89 points away from the all time high. perhaps traders new all along that the president's threat of economic armageddon was false. the opening bell is next. dad, i'd put that down. ah. 4g, huh? verizon 4g lte. 700 megahertz spectrum, end-to-end, pure lte build. the most consistent speeds indoors or out. and, obviously, astonishing throughput. obviously... you know how fast our home wifi is? yeah. this is basically just asast. oh. and verizon's got more fast lte covera

to do something right. today president obama warned of the casualties, a weakened national defense, the huge loss of jobs, and with it a crippling of the recovery. by the way, with that ax ready to fall, he offered a way out of the endless government shutdowns and the fearfulness and the low morale that goes with it. will the republicans respond to anything he says now? will they at least try to avoid another slam bang crash in washington? will they pull back from the brink and start climbing mountains instead of crashing over cliffs? i've got two former party chairs with me, republican michael steele and democrat ed rendell, both msnbc political analysts. let's start with the president this morning in the stark terms he laid out for republicans. it's not just the economy that will suffer from the looming cuts next week. that's march 1st. national security will as well, and it's seriously at risk. >> already the threat of these cuts has forced the navy to delay an aircraft carrier that was supposed to deploy to the persian gulf, and as our military leaders have made clear, changes

part of this morning reading them. yet the obama administration within months of taking office released several olc memos describing the legal justification for the treatment of terrorist detainees in u.s. custody. do you think it was appropriate that a different standard was applied to the release of the memos from the bush administration than those produced by the obama administration? >> i do not think there was a different standard. >> one was released within four months of the obama administration taking office. the other had been requested for a very long -- a much longer time. >> i am not a lawyer. i have come to learn of the term dui generis. the olc memos released after the president came into office were released because the program was terminated. olc wiolll counsel opinions, and those opinions were looked at in a different way because of the sui generis circumstances. >> both are essential for the ability of congress to carry its oversight responsibilities. finally, the intelligence reform act and terrorist prevention act of 2004, with which you are very familiar and which i

. for two reasons, ali. first of all, president obama is in the sweet spot of his presidency, the moment of maximum leverage that occurs for a president right after re-election. basically around 18 months at the start of a second term where a president can push through almost anything he wants. second of all, he's positioned to pull a nixon in china. just as only a committed anti-communist like nixon could go to china, someone like a pragmatic aggressive like president obama could appeal to his base and still get tough entitlement cuts through as part of a grand bargain. this is a moment of rare opportunity but it takes presidential leadership and that, frankly, has been lacking. >> one approach that republicans have put forward is the idea of a balanced budget amendment. >> the real cause of our debt is that our government has been spending $1 trillion more than it takes in every year. that's why we need a balanced budget amendment. >> republicans, margaret, are not blameless in this, bush era tax cuts, wars in afghanistan and iraq are major drivers. the spending cuts that a balanced bu

: republicans derided the bill. and minority leader mitch mcconnell charged president obama has manufactured a crisis. >> look: our country has a spending problem-- a pretty massive one; most of us in the chamber at least acknowledge that fact. but we can either address the problem in a smart way, or we can do it in the way he's proposed. >> reporter: another republican- - pat toomey of pennsylvania-- said the smart way is to rule out tax hikes and let the president decide the best way to implement spending cuts. >> it's not necessary if we pass this legislation because it would give the president the flexibility to cut the items, that would not be disruptive to our economy, not be disruptive in any meaningful way. >> reporter: the white house rejected that idea out of hand. spokesman jay carney called it "the worst of all worlds." >> this bill is an effort to shift the focus away from the need for the congress to work toward a bipartisan compromise that would avoid sequestration. >> reporter: in the end, neither side could get the 60 votes needed to bring up its bill. the stalemate guarante

>>> things are still moving forward on immigration after president obama picked up a phone to reach out to republicans. he called john mccain and lindsay graham and marco rubio. in a statement the white house said the president reiterated that he remained supportive of the effort underway in congress. as that phone call came in for one senator, so did something of a backlash for constituents. at two town hall meetings in arizona, john mccain had to defend his position on immigration and it got heated. several voters called illegal immigrants criminals and asked why armed soldiers can't defend the entire border. >> cut off their welfare and all of their stuff and go back. >> majority of them are not -- >> you're a senator with the federal government and you're doing nothing about it. you said build a dang fence. where's the fence? >> in case you missed it, i showed you -- >> that's not a fence. >> it's a banana, we've put up a banana with all -- >> let me bring in "washington post" reporter felicia san dez and jackie, we knew this wasn't going to be easy. what do you think away from
